3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a nice dark brown with the usual creamy, off-white head from the nitro pour.
S: The nose is chocolatey (primarily dark chocolate) with some hints of coffee and roasted malt. Perhaps a bit of molasses in there as well.
T: The flavor is not quite as muted as you often find with beers served on nitrogen. Good roast and smooth, creamy chocolate flavor. The coffee is subtle and in the background.
M: The mouthfeel is also quite creamy, though a bit watery at times.
D: A nice stout from a brewery that I had never heard of/had any beers from before. I wouldn’t mind having a glass of this one again.

Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium to heavy chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good beer that exceeded my expectations.
